Glance into the world just as though time were gone: and everything crooked will become straight to you. – Friedrich Nietzsche, unpublished fragments dating to November 1882 – February 1883.

For its third instalment, Transit Arts’ roving screen presents a selection of moving image work by Dorine Aguerre, Miles Joseph, Lucie Rachel, Jane Topping and Josie Rae Turnbull. With narrative film the dominant aesthetic, these artists choose a more transgressive approach: bending, rearranging, and rewriting the record. Momentarily, the screen becomes a palimpsest of ideas and images, stories overlaid and erased. Found footage is repurposed, the mise-en-scene dismantled, new realities are constructed, and old ones buried.

The project is accompanied by a new publication including contributions from Marcus Jack, Denise Bonetti, Jane Topping, and Stephen Nelson.

Presented as part of Glasgow Short Film Festival 2016 in partnership with Peña, CCA Glasgow, and The Glad Café.
